BSOD during boot - cannot start even in safe mode

Acer AO522

64 GB SSD by Transcend

0x000000F4 (0x0000000000000003 , 0xFFFFFA8003418B30 , 0xFFFFFA8003418E10 , 0xFFFFF80001D9B8B0 ) BSOD ( disk drive related I guess ? )

Like in the topic - BSOD shows up at startup, even in safe mode.


I don't have any minidumps - just the memory dump.

Memory dump would be fine. What you have is just the error code. there are many possibilities with an F4

If your system control panel was configured correctly it should be about 256Kb. You can upload that dump to a file sharing service like rapidshare or configure cpanel and wait for the next one.





We do need the DMP file as it contains the only record of the sequence of events leading up to the crash, what drivers were loaded, and what was responsible.

If you are overclocking STOP

You may be able to get the DMP files without crashing by booting into safe mode (F8) with networking.

To enable us to assist you with your computer's BSOD symptoms, upload the contents of your "\Windows\Minidump" folder.

The procedure:
Quote:
* Copy the contents of \Windows\Minidump to another (temporary) location somewhere on your machine.
* Zip up the copy.
* Attach the ZIP archive to your post using the "paperclip" (file attachments) button.
*If the files are too large please upload them to a file sharing service like "Rapidshare" and put a link to them in your reply.

To ensure minidumps are enabled:
Quote:
* Go to Start, in the Search Box type: sysdm.cpl, press Enter.
* Under the Advanced tab, click on the Startup and Recovery Settings... button.
* Ensure that Automatically restart is unchecked.
* Under the Write Debugging Information header select Small memory dump (256 kB) in the dropdown box (the 256kb varies).
* Ensure that the Small Dump Directory is listed as %systemroot%\Minidump.
* OK your way out.
* Reboot if changes have been made.
